What’s your definition of food perfection? There are so many crazy diet trends, confusing labels, and chronic digestive and autoimmune issues. This makes it even harder to figure out what the “perfect” foods are. Members share their questions and concerns with me all the time. Why are the dairy goats given grain? Why was the butter a bit sour this week? Why aren’t the eggs and meat fresher? Why are your shipping prices so high? When it comes down to it, people are looking for three things from any product: high quality, speed, and low cost. You can usually get two but not all three.

As you probably heard, Dewayne Johnson won a huge case against Monsanto this week. Woo hoo! It is now proven that glyphosate (in the popular weed killer Round Up) led to Dewayne’s terminal cancer, and he will be awarded $289 million. This case gives huge precedent for more cases to follow. And, having my food choices validated in the conventional arena feels pretty good. But, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Glyphosate is not the only chemical that is abundantly sprayed or added to our American food. And, the truth is, we don’t even have the right to know what’s in our food.

If you’ve perused our website or store, you may have noticed that we don’t use the word “organic” anywhere. This is intentional. Since we are not a “certified organic” farm, we cannot legally use the word “organic” to describe our food… even though it’s probably the best word in modern American culture to use. One of the top questions I get from current and prospective members is, “Are you organic?” I wish I could simply say, “Yes,” but my answer is more complex.

On my recent farm visit, I was schooled by the farm staff on how to make fresh dairy products. I watched them make everything – many varieties of yogurt, kefir, cottage cheese, sour cream, butter, pudding, and more!

An affordable and nutrient packed addition to any meal that’s easy to prepare and serve. I had the honor of camping on the farm for four days this week – in a heat wave. Given that it’s an Amish farm, we had to find more old fashioned ways of beating the 101 F heat in between chores. We ate ice cream at nearly every meal, splashed in icy cold spring water, and drank fresh green icy smoothies.

When most store-bought ice cream is filled with junk, you can turn to your small farmer, shop wisely, or make your own! A heat wave is coming, and you know what that means. Finding ways to beat the heat. One of my all-time favorite ways to cool down is ice cream! Here’s the big problem. Store bought ice creams, even ones advertised as “healthy”, are filled with all kinds of junk.

Pork is the most widely eaten meat, making up 38% of meat production worldwide. Historically, pork has been a staple in traditional diets for thousands of years. Wild hogs were hunted in the wild and then eventually domesticated. Also historically, pork has been banned in cultures and religions for thousands of year. What’s the big deal? To eat pork or not to eat pork?

Fresh cream. Fresh raw cream. So silky. So decadent. Savory and sweet. In my opinion, one of the best foods around. When it’s truly fresh, it’s divine.
